A Book Review: A Good and Perfect Gift

I read through A Good and Perfect Gift, by Amy Becker, in about 2 days. It was captivating. It's the story of a family who didn't find out about the special needs of their child until AFTER the birth. The author writes about her excitement for their first child, the emotional roller-coaster they went on after the news, and the love that grew in their hearts toward their little girl.
  I enjoyed the premise of the book. While I am glad I read it, and the reminder of how precious life is, I'm also glad I didn't read it while pregnant. I don't think emotionally I could've handled it very well.
    The book maintained my interest for the first few chapters, then I wished the author would move through the story faster in the middle. She spent a lot of time in the 6-8 month age range, which from reading, you could tell alot happened, but at the same time, it felt a little repetitive. I enjoyed the "ending" of the book, but had to go check out her blog because I really wanted to see pictures. (Which I did)
